 A company's net profit as determining value

When comparing the profitability of companies, the term net profit often appears. It plays an important role in financial statement analysis as it represents the profit of a company after all costs have been deducted from its revenue. In this context, terms like net earnings or net income can also be used. When a net profit is negative, a company generates a net loss.

Global vs. Danish

  In 2020, Novo Nordisk was not only the second most profitable company in Denmark – when looking on a worldwide perspective, it was ranked among the hundred largest companies in the world. The Danish pharmaceutical company reached a market value that was ahead of well-known international companies such as Paypal or IBM.
